Simple Style // Autumn ride around Bristol Harbour with Seasalt…

Autumn: rusts, oranges and browns. Warm woolly jumpers and soft needle cord. Discovering your favourite new scarf and getting outside and enjoying this wonderful season.  Yesterday I did just that. Taking my beloved Temple Cycles bike out for a spin around the harbour.

This season I am loving to wear colours that reflect the season, my new favourite is this beautiful rust needle cord ‘Silversmith’ skirt from Seasalt Cornwall.  Soft fabric, with a great drape and length. Teaming it with their green ‘Fruity’ Jumper for a delicious autumnal look, perfect for a whizz around Bristol Harbour.

Bristol harbourside is a five minute cycle ride from my home, a gentle cycle to the amazing Wapping Wharf with it’s many independent cafe’s, bars and shops.  From there a flat circular route around Bristol harbour itself.

My favourite part of the harbour is the Underfall Yard, right at the far end.  A working boat yard, full of boats being repaired, built or stored for sale.  You never quite know what you are going to find, from a film company using it as location for a pirate drama or an old tug boat being overhauled.  The yard is always bustling with noisy hammering or sanding and locals cycling or running through on the harbour loop.

At the bottom end of the yard is the old pump house, which has now been converted into a visitors centre, museum and cafe.  It’s a lovely spot to watch the boat craftsmen work, and watch the comings and goings on the water whilst having a coffee or a spot of lunch in the Pickle cafe.

This Autumn, I am determined to cycle my bike as much as possible. Layering up with thick merino woollens, tights and boots.  A chunky scarf to keep the wind from freezing my neck.  And if it rains I shall still go (please hold me to that).. snow? Not so sure!

  • Oh my, can I just tell you how much I am completely in love with Seasalt Cornwall?! I’m an American and I always seem my British instagram friends looking so absolutely adorable and I could never find clothes here in the States that had that same feeling (obvs). Now I’ve found this site – thanks to you – and only 15 minutes in, I have 4 things in my shopping bag! I loathe you in the best way possible. I’m so excited to receive these clothes!

  • Stunning photography Lou! You look beautiful. What a backdrop for the Seasalt clothing you chose. I think the collection is particularly excellent this season (adoring my Trailboard cords!) Getting out in the elements is so good for the soul…love your bicycle. I don’t have wheels but like you have a determination to be outdoors more as part of my daily self-care. xx
